T/C.......Despite T/C being gutted by S&W they still have a great product. I own many Encores.
Good luck

I have an Encore and a CVA Optima. The CVA is a better gun at about half the price.

Re: thompson vs cva

I'm on the same fence right now... Trying to decide between a CVA Accura MR and a Thompson Pro-Hunter FX. I'm leaning towards the CVA but want to handle each and see how they feel. Good Luck with your decision.

Re: thompson vs cva

I own all t/c muzzys, but all my friends own cva Optimas and they're a better gun for half the money. Check walmart they discontinue them now for great prices! Cva all the way, save your money and buy good glass!!!!!!!

Luck is where timing and preparation meet!

Re: thompson vs cva

I know a serious group of Ohio muzzy hunters who all got rid of their T/C Pro Hunters to get Accura Mrs......In my opinion T/C went way down hill after the merger

Re: thompson vs cva

I don't own a TC inline, but I do own a CVA inline. I've had an optima for 11 years. I really can't complain. It's accurate, affordable and if it ever didn't go bang it was my own dumb fault. I got mine from the bargain cave at Cabelas. It was less than half the price of the Pro-hunter or the encore. For a couple years my CVA optima was the only firearm I was using for deer in SRA's. I made some of my best shots at deer with that inline. I also think it's a mental thing and knowing I had one shot. I wouldn't knock my optima one bit. It is a great inline. Mine is a 45cal by the way.

Re: thompson vs cva

My main gun is my flintlock so I didn't want to spend too much so I bought a CVA v2 optima. The gun is very accurate and I shot a nice doe with it last November. I only paid $180.00 at the end of last year when Walmart discounted it. It was originally $260.00
